"Due to illness of Rebecca Herbst, the role of Elizabeth Webber will be temporarily recast by Martha Madison with a first airdate of June 8," a GH spokesperson tells soapcentral.com. "The cast and crew of General Hospital wish Becky a speedy recovery and expect her to be back at work soon."
Madison spent four years as Isabella "Belle" Black on NBC's Days of our Lives. Her last appearance on DAYS was in 2008. Since that time, she has made a couple of primetime guest spots and gone on to star in the web soap, the Bay.
It is unclear how long Herbst will be out of action. Madison first airs on June 8.
